It’s only been a day since Apple permanently discontinued the iPod touch. And although the company said that customers could still buy the product “while supplies lasted”, it seems that the stocks didn’t last very long. At present, the iPod touch is completely sold out in the US online Apple Store.

As of Wednesday morning, there were still a few iPod models available, mostly versions with 32GB of storage. However, at the time of this article’s publication, it is no longer possible to purchase iPod touch models from Apple website.

The seventh-generation iPod touch was available in six different colors: space gray, silver, pink, blue, gold, and red. Customers could choose between versions with 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB of internal storage. However, all models have now disappeared in the United States. Although the iPod touch webpage is still available, the product is now labeled as “sold out”.

As with other countries like Brazil, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom, you can still find iPod touch models available on the Apple Store online. It looks like Apple only has a few units left in stock, so it shouldn’t be long before the iPod touch disappears into the world.

For those in the US who still want the chance to buy a latest iPod touch, there are still a few Apple Stores with units available. Of course, you can also search for iPod touch units in other stores like Amazon.

The end of the iPod

Although the end of the iPod touch wasn’t predicted by any rumors, it wasn’t exactly a surprise. The iPod touch was the last product available under the iPod brand, as Apple discontinued the iPod nano and iPod shuffle in 2017.

The last available iPod touch was released in 2019, but it didn’t have any changes from its predecessor, except for the A10 Fusion chip, which ensured more performance and longer support for updates. software. The seventh-generation iPod touch was also the last officially available 4-inch device in Apple’s lineup.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lucidworks, the provider of next-generation AI-powered search apps and pioneer of the Connected Experience Cloud, surveyed consumers in the US and UK who buy clothes online. Respondents said there has been a noticeable increase in “out of stock” messages during the pandemic, but they are open to relevant substitutions that match their tastes, preferred fit and price range. Point-in-time recommendations require apparel e-tailers to understand a shopper’s specific desire, predict inventory availability, and promote the items shoppers are most likely to add to cart. The survey report outlines consumer preferences and behaviors regarding online clothing purchases during the pandemic.

Buyers are open to relevant substitutes
76% of shoppers say they will sometimes or always buy a substitute, even if they buy with a specific garment in mind. However, openness to substitutions differed geographically. Overall, US shoppers are more than three times more likely to purchase an alternative clothing product at any time than UK consumers. When consumers were asked if there was an item of clothing they would never replace, they expressed preferences based on brands, styles and fits that are non-negotiable in categories such as jeans, shoes and underwear.

Inventory-based notifications are a reliable engagement tool
Nearly a quarter of shoppers say that even though they are looking for relevant substitutes, they know what they want and are willing to wait for their favorite sneakers, jeans and underwear to come back in stock. Proactive notifications can save shoppers from the nasty surprise of an “out of stock” message. 91% of shoppers want to be notified when an item they love is back in stock and 61% of shoppers say they’re more likely to purchase an item in their size if they know it’s out of stock of stock. Email, SMS, or app notification alerts are an effective way to ensure shoppers get what they need.

Smarter search sells what’s in stock
Inconsistent recommendations aren’t the only reason your customers leave empty-handed. 15% of shoppers said they usually end up on a “no results” page when an item they’re looking for is out of stock. This means that retailers do not offer relevant substitutes in place of a preferred item. Retailers who invest in semantic vector search technology learn from customer behavior to match queries to products with a similar goal so that shoppers never end up on a dead-end, “no results” page, even if the Expected item is not available.

Other key findings from the survey include:

  • 57% of shoppers say they find the specific item of clothing they’re looking for online is out of stock frequently or every time they shop.
  • 86% of online shoppers prefer to have their clothing purchases delivered to their home (rather than picking them up in store).
  • More than two-thirds of shoppers (69%) will buy from another apparel retailer if they can’t find what they need on their favorite app or website.
  • Among respondents who want to receive back-in-stock notifications, 75% prefer to receive an email notification and 38% prefer SMS notifications.
  • Men are more than three times more likely to buy a substitute at any time than women.

The survey was conducted in March this year and was limited to respondents who buy clothes online at least once a month. 401 respondents located in the UK and 401 respondents located in the United States participated. Download the full survey report today.

Elon Musk has promised to clean up Twitter by showing the world why he boosts some tweets above others and purging it of automated accounts that loudly promote get-rich-quick schemes, products and politicians.

“If our Twitter auction succeeds, we’ll beat the spambots or die trying!” Musk tweeted April 21th. “If someone is leading an army of robots and trolls, then I am definitely their enemy.” he said at the Met Gala last weekend.

But Musk himself received mechanized reinforcement, the researchers say, including through accounts that praised its most valuable investment, Tesla shares, when the electric car company faced negative news due to crashes, poor financial results and clashes with regulators.

These researchers say bots – automated accounts programmed to perform predefined tasks, often at speeds faster than a person could – have been deployed to harass critics of Musk, to trumpet the controversial takeover approved by Twitter’s board and even to portray Musk as a model of manhood and the opposite of propaganda outwit George Soros, a liberal financier and subject of viral anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Musk’s non-binding promise of a duel to the death has raised eyebrows among experts who say ever-improving robot technology is making them harder to spot, especially among billions of posts. Some experts point out that Musk himself likely has millions of “fanbots” among his 91.3 million Twitter followers.

Musk is a near-perfect magnet for automated hype, researchers say. For those involved in the market, he runs a business that is riskier than most, is prone to volatile price movements and serious criticism, and is often short-sold in search of profits. on his backs..

Beyond that, Musk is widely admired, is the richest man in the world, dates celebrities, and supports not only cryptocurrencies, but even meaningless cryptocurrencies, as the old known joke under the name of Dogecoin.

With his push for “free speech” on Twitter, Musk is becoming a bigger player in politics, an area of ​​online discourse in which researchers have long found evidence of rogue accounts.

This was the case with Donald Trump in 2016, when Oxford University researchers found that pro-Trump bots became more aggressive during the final presidential debate, in which pro-Trump bots outnumbered pro-Hillary Clinton bots by a factor of seven.

“When we tend to see a really divisive number that people feel the need to pull together to show they’re supported, we tend to see more bot activity,” said April Glaser, principal investigator at the Shorenstein Center. on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School.

Bots can drive real-world behavior in myriad ways, increasing popularity or encouraging direct abuse by humans. “It just creates a stack,” Glaser said. “When it seems like everyone is doing it, it’s easier for one more person to do it.”

Musk’s multifaceted activity would attract spammers without any help from the man himself, and there is no evidence that he sought out or coordinated their actions.

Many pro-Musk tweets show little sophistication in the content that goes into designing a reusable rocket or a plug-in car. A typically deep example, from @Stock_Tracker1, reads: “$TSLA Recent News Tesla Raised to Overtake Baird in Production,” followed by a link to the stock web chat. Some bots report all news, including negative reports.

But it’s reasonable to wonder if a Tesla contractor or subcontractor is responsible for some of the pro-Musk tweets, says University of Maryland professor David Kirsch, who will present the first of three articles this month. examining the influence of bots on Tesla fans and stock prices. .

The main other category of suspects would be “individual shareholders or pro-Tesla people who have the technical skills to do so,” Kirsch said.

The presence of some robots became evident shortly after the automaker’s stock was hit by reports of Model S cars catching fire. In a period of 75 minutes in November 2013, eight new accounts appeared on Twitter and started posting to the stock.

In the following years, these eight accounts alone have posted 30,000 times using the ticker symbol TSLA – at such regular intervals and in such volume that the odds that they represent eight real people are infinitesimally small, Kirsch mentioned. One account, @danrocks4, posted bursts of messages an average of every three hours around the clock for more than six years, according to Kirsch and co-author Mohsen Chowdhury.

Using a free tool called Botometer, which ranks the likelihood of an account being mechanized, from a score of 0 for an almost certain human account to 5 for an almost certain bot, Kirsch and Chowdhury found that 23 % of 157,000 tweets with the #TSLA hashtag from the 2010 IPO through 2020 came from accounts with a Botometer score of 4 or greater. (Developed at Indiana University, Botometer uses machine learning to compare a given account against tens of thousands of known bots or real people. The program uses thousands of data points in each comparison, including the number and nature of linked accounts and volume of tweets.)

Apple and Amazon have comparable levels of bot activity, Kirsch said, but those boosters were more likely to include other stock symbols and refer to broader market movements, while Tesla pumps were more likely to refer to Tesla products, or Musk, or the specific company. prospects.

“When you get to Tesla, there’s a lot of product talk and very little other ticker talk,” he said.

The most prolific bots tend to have low followers and engagement. Kirsch thinks part of their goal may be to show up in the feeds of people who are already interested in Tesla.

Some automated accounts sprinkle in references to current events or domestic affairs to appear human. While it was once an exotic technology, it’s now so easy that marketing companies are doing it as a service. Because Musk has tens of millions of Twitter followers, more human-looking bots have a chance to gain traction and influence many people at once. experts say.

This opportunity also attracts partially or fully mechanized networks that have no real purpose other than to draw attention to something else.

Even some Twitter accounts that boosted Russia’s ‘troll factory’ tweets during the 2016 election have recently done the same for pro-Musk tweets that tag or praise him.

Examining accounts now boosted by Twitter personas that had boosted troll factory accounts later suspended by Twitter, researcher Chris Scott found some with American flags in their bios and constantly echoing what they say. Russian state media.

In this group, there are those who post content intended to inspire, but also who make mistakes: an account identified by Scott announced a conversion to Christianity long after he put “Christian” in his bio, and the same account has celebrated three years of sobriety. a few months after turning six.

A Account on the same network two weeks ago tweeted four times in five days a version of “We need more men like Elon Musk and less like George Soros, who agrees?”

He continued to tout Musk, retweeting Tuesday to over 60,000 followers: “Elon Musk has already done more for the United States than Elizabeth Warren ever could or will!”

On the heels of their worst session of 2022, stocks initially struggled to find direction on Friday following the release of April’s jobs report – although ultimately they fell again happy to sell.

The Labor Department said this morning that the United States added 428,000 jobs last month, while the unemployment rate held steady at 3.6%. This is the 12th month in a row that US employers have added at least 400,000 new jobs. At this rate, the economy could recoup all of its pandemic-related job losses by mid-July, says Kiplinger economist David Payne.

Also noteworthy in the report is wage growth, which rose 0.3% month-over-month and 5.5% year-over-year, and participation rate – or the percentage of the population that has a job or is looking for one – which fell slightly to 62.2%.

“While there’s no shortage of worry about clipping investors’ sails right now, this jobs reading likely won’t be one of them,” said Mike Loewengart, chief strategy officer at investment at E*Trade. “With a relatively rosy jobs picture, despite slight gaps on participation and wages, the Federal Reserve is unlikely to be swayed by its rate hike campaign. And since the numbers are mostly in line with expectations, the market may have already priced in a robust jobs reading.”

Shares initially opened lower before rallying midday. These intraday gains were short-lived, however, with all three markets falling back into negative territory in the afternoon.

At the close, the Nasdaq Compound was down 1.4% at 12,144, the S&P 500 Index was 0.6% lower at 4,123 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 0.3% at 32,899.

Other news on the stock market today:

  • Small cap Russell 2000 plunged 1.7% to 1,839.
  • U.S. crude oil futures gained 1.4% to end at $109.88 a barrel.
  • Gold Futures Contracts rose 0.4% to $1,882.80 an ounce.
  • Bitcoin fell 0.9% to $35,953.66. (Bitcoin trades 24 hours a day; prices shown here are as of 4 p.m.)
  • DraftKings (DKNG) plunged 8.9% after the online sports betting company reported a first-quarter net loss of $467.7 million, higher than the $346.3 million net loss it suffered a year ago. On an adjusted basis, however, DKNG’s adjusted per-share loss of 74 cents was lower than the $1.09 per-share loss analysts expected. Revenue of $417 million is above the consensus estimate of $412 million. “The DraftKings quarter was buoyed by strong March Madness and Super Bowl numbers, which set records for new bettors,” said Jonathan Dube, executive-in-residence at investment bank Progress Partners. “DraftKings and its competitors are all looking for ways to grow their business and increase their margins, and one of the ways they’re doing that is by aggressively moving into the iGaming online casino space. DraftKings announced that it had completed its purchase of Golden Nugget Online Gaming, which will help it compete with established brands like Caesars and BetMGM in the iGaming space, a strategically complementary business that has higher margins than sports betting.”
  • In the first quarter, the global cloud services provider Cloudy (NET) reported revenue of $212.2 million, up 54% year-over-year, and adjusted earnings of 1 cent per share, compared to a loss per share of 3 cents at the same time last year. Still, NET stock plunged 12.4% after earnings, possibly due to the company reporting operating cash flow of -$35.5 million for the three-month period. vs. +$23.5M in Q1 2021. “The company beats the best point solutions with its easier-to-use, less expensive bundled solutions, all on a single development platform — the workers,” says the Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan (Perform). “He played a major role in protecting the digital infrastructure of Ukraine and other countries from Russian attacks.” Horan also thinks Cloudflare “should be in able to deliver double-digit revenue growth rates over the next few years based on the strong demand for its offering and the growing economic importance of the Internet around the world.”

Wall Street’s New Dividend Payers

The Fed is unlikely to change course with its monetary tightening plan anytime soon. That seems to be the general consensus around Wall Street, especially on the heels of today’s strong jobs report.

“We’ve been cautious all year given the unprecedented size of the Fed’s balance sheet, which it needs to unwind from the inflationary pressures we’ve faced and concerns that valuations are too high as interest rates were about to go up,” says Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for registered investment adviser Independent Advisor Alliance. Zacarelli thinks the Fed will continue to “aggressively fight inflation” no matter how much damage the stock market may be inflicted in the short term.

With this in mind, he reminds investors that it is prudent to invest in quality stocks of companies capable of weathering a recessionary environment. This includes companies “with a competitive advantage, pricing power, and a strong balance sheet (e.g., relatively low debt to operating profit),” Zaccarelli adds.

There are many ways for investors to find companies with high-quality fundamentals, including looking for those that consistently increase their dividends or issue special dividends, both signs of financial strength.

There’s also money to be made with the new dividend-paying stocks on Wall Street. Despite a US economy plagued by labor shortages, supply chain issues and higher prices, these companies are showing financial strength by initiating dividends.

U.S. stock futures fell, with tech stocks on course for losses after the opening bell, as investors weighed the implications of the Fed’s most aggressive monetary policy tightening in over two decades.

S&P 500 futures fell 0.7% on Thursday. Contracts for the technology-focused Nasdaq-100 lost 0.9% and futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average edged down 0.5%.

The pullback came a day after major U.S. stock indexes soared, with the Dow Jones surging more than 900 points, its biggest one-day gain since 2020. On Wednesday, central bank officials approved an increase in interest rate by half a percentage point, raising the federal government. – fund rates within a target range of between 0.75% and 1%. But it was comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell that energized markets after he said officials were not actively considering raising rates by three-quarters of a percentage point, or 75 basis points, during of its June meeting.

Powell’s comments came as a relief to investors who grew concerned that the Fed could raise interest rates too far, too quickly and possibly tip the economy into a recession.

But by Thursday, investor optimism had begun to wane. Even with a bigger increase in interest rates over the next few months, investors still face the most aggressive tightening of US monetary policy since 2000 – the last time the central bank raised rates by half -point. Many investors are now wondering how much the Fed might raise rates over the next two years and how that might affect the economy and corporate earnings.

Thursday morning, these jitters were observed throughout the market. In premarket trading in New York, growth stocks were particularly hard hit. Chipmakers Advanced Micro Devices,

Nvidia and NXP Semiconductors each lost more than 1.6%. Megacap’s technology shares also fell, with Tesla down 1.6% and Netflix down 1.5%.

Higher interest rates can diminish the appeal of tech stocks by reducing the value investors place on their future earnings. Higher yields in general also increase the appeal of fixed income products over riskier assets such as equities.

Booking Holdings jumped 10% before market after its revenue beat expectations and it said it saw strengthening global travel trends in the current quarter.

Etsy fell 11% after the online market posted a lower-than-expected forecast for the current quarter.

In the bond market, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.968% from 2.914% on Wednesday. Bond prices and yields move in opposite directions. On Wednesday, bonds rebounded alongside equities before losing momentum.

Assets that investors perceive as safer were among those that rallied on Thursday as fund managers sought safe havens amid volatility. The WSJ Dollar Index, which measures the US currency against a basket of 16 others, rose 0.4%. On Wednesday, the index fell 0.9%, its biggest drop since November 2020. The dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency makes it a particularly attractive haven for investors.

The price of gold, another preferred safe haven, also climbed 1.4% to $1,895 per troy ounce.

In oil markets, Brent, the international oil benchmark, rose 0.6% to $110.80 a barrel.

Overseas, the pancontinental Stoxx Europe 600 index rose 1.4%. Banks, technology stocks and transportation companies are among those that have rallied. Italian bank UniCredit climbed 6.3% after its earnings beat analysts’ expectations. Airbus jumped 8.3% after the maker announced an increase in net profit and decided to increase production of its best-selling A320 single-aisle jetliner.

Shell gained 3.1% after first-quarter profit growth, boosted by soaring commodity prices.

In Asia, the Hong Kong Hang Seng fell 0.4% and the Shanghai Composite rose 0.7%. Markets in Japan were closed for a holiday.

In my long career recruiting experienced financial advisors, I have seen the impact of different economic cycles on retention and attrition.

In times of uncertainty, advisors seek stability and want to work with a company that has the financial foundation to weather the storm. Alternatively, when the economy is booming, they might be attracted to larger payments and more flexibility.

Today’s environment is not so clear. There is heightened volatility fueled by troubling geopolitical tensions, but unemployment sits at just 3.6%. Investors have amassed huge gains in the stock market in recent years, but inflation is squeezing those returns in a way not seen in the past 40 years. At the same time, some health experts are warning that the next wave of Covid-19 could be beckoning.

Amid the ragtag backdrop and discussions of the “big quit,” I have watched advisers take stock of their careers and how they want to operate their practices in new ways. Three themes have emerged over the past few months as I traveled the country talking with advisors.

More FA Playbook:

Here’s a look at other stories impacting the financial advisor industry.

With more urgency than ever, advisors want to affiliate their practices with firms that share their values, offer consistent support and resources, and continually invest in cutting-edge technology to make their lives and those of their clients easier, more convenient and safer.

Advisors know their reputation is tied to the business they’re affiliated with – and they take that seriously, especially in today’s world where customers are more likely than ever to sever ties with businesses. whose values ​​do not match theirs.

If you’re an advisor moving your practice to a new practice, you want to be proud to have your name associated with the brand and excited to tell your clients about it.

The alignment of values ​​also extends to the level of individual practice. Many Advisors I speak with are interested not only in switching companies, but also in partnering with other Advisors who can help them serve their clients and grow. The team model approach has been around for a long time, but it’s even more appealing today because of the synergies created by technology that allow advisors to integrate their specialties and provide powerful, comprehensive advice to clients.

Support and resources are the second priority for advisors considering a move. Along with other heavy time constraints, advisors want a company that can provide them with solid research, in-depth financial planning capabilities, and end-to-end support when and how they need it.

If you’re like many advisors, you may also be facing a talent shortage. Look for companies that can provide you with turnkey marketing, hiring and retention resources that make it easier to attract, retain and train qualified personnel.

Technology also plays a huge role in influencing an advisor’s decision to stay or leave their company. As the world moved online during the pandemic, customers became accustomed to increased flexibility and availability. Even today, as people resume more in-person interactions, clients expect to be able to work with their advisors anytime, anywhere, and on any device.

Advisors should expect their business to deliver mobile, integrated, and secure systems that drive client satisfaction and practice efficiency.

We are at an inflection point where a significant number of advisors are taking a moment to assess what is most important in their lives.

For many, job satisfaction—and the ability to thrive and grow—plays an important role in their overall well-being and happiness. If the current environment has you thinking about the next step in your career, now is the time to dive in and assess what your business has to offer.

And taking it from your peers – shared values, support and resources for growth and technology – can be a game-changer when it comes to achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself and your career.

Volatility will continue to rise in rates, inflation fears https://coachoutletonlinespick.org/volatility-will-continue-to-rise-in-rates-inflation-fears/ Sun, 01 May 2022 16:01:05 +0000 https://coachoutletonlinespick.org/volatility-will-continue-to-rise-in-rates-inflation-fears/ EQUITIES could continue to remain volatile this week amid fears of rising rates due to rising inflation, lockdown in China and war in Ukraine. The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEi) fell 178.20 points or 2.57% to close at 6,731.25 on Friday, while the broader all-stock index fell 72, 34 points or 1.96% at 3,605.14. […]]]>

EQUITIES could continue to remain volatile this week amid fears of rising rates due to rising inflation, lockdown in China and war in Ukraine.

The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEi) fell 178.20 points or 2.57% to close at 6,731.25 on Friday, while the broader all-stock index fell 72, 34 points or 1.96% at 3,605.14.

Week over week, the PSEi is down 267.34 points from its close of 6,998.59 on April 22.

Trading is expected to remain volatile this week, analysts say. Last week, the PSEi tipped on oil price moves, the lockdown in China and hawkish comments from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Diversified Securities, Inc. stock trader Aniceto K. Pangan said in a text message that the market will remain volatile on fears of rate hikes amid inflation concerns exacerbated by “supply constraints due to the pandemic…, the Ukraine-Russia war and the China lockdown.”

“Some shutdowns in China, which is the world’s second largest economy, could slow the prospects for economic recovery and worsen some disruptions in global supply chains, which could also lead to higher inflation,” Michael said. L. Ricafort, chief economist of Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. said in an email.

“The continuation of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict for more than 2 months could already aggravate inflationary pressures in the context of the resulting global increase in the prices of oil, energy and other raw materials,” added Mr. Ricafort.

On Sunday, mainland China reported 8,329 new confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 for April 30, Reuters reported.

Health authorities said on Saturday there were nearly 16,000 cordoned off areas in Shanghai, with more than 4 million people barred from leaving their homes. A further 5.4 million people were prevented from leaving their compounds.

Meanwhile, Russia launched missile strikes in southern and eastern Ukraine on Saturday, Ukrainian officials said, and women and children were evacuated from a steel mill in the besieged city of Mariupol after sheltering there for more than a week.

Moscow has focused on southern and eastern Ukraine after failing to capture the capital Kyiv in a nine-week assault that razed cities, killed thousands of civilians and forced more than 5 million people to flee abroad.

At home, the national elections to be held on May 9 will continue to affect trade.

U.S. stocks rose on Wednesday, putting major indexes on track to recoup some of their losses after selling off sharply the day before.

The S&P 500 gained 1.2% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.9%, or about 310 points. The technology-focused Nasdaq Composite rose 1.6%.

On Tuesday, the Nasdaq posted its biggest one-day percentage decline since September 2020, while the Dow Jones lost more than 800 points, as investors digested earnings reports and weighed inflation concerns, the prospect of a rapid tightening of Federal Reserve policy and the spread of Covid-19 in China.

Major US equity indices are now down substantially for the year, with the S&P 500 down 11% and the Nasdaq Composite down 19%. On Tuesday, the Nasdaq closed at its lowest level since December 2020, erasing the gains it had made in 2021. The Russell 2000 Index of small-cap companies closed Tuesday at its lowest level since December 2020.

Investors characterized Wednesday’s rise in U.S. stock futures earlier in the day as a temporary rally. Seema Shah, chief strategist at Principal Global Investors, said she expects the stock market‘s next moves to be either sideways or bearish.

Earnings are “supporting the market to some extent, but I don’t think that’s enough to support it higher,” Ms Shah said. She said her team had moved to a neutral recommendation on their overall equity positions.

“The risks just keep piling up,” she said. “We don’t want to pick up pennies in front of the steamroller.”

Many big companies are reporting results this week, with results expected after Wednesday’s closing bell from companies such as Facebook parent Meta Platforms and Ford..

Twitter,

which this week agreed to sell itself for $44 billion to Elon Musk, is due to report on Thursday.

Nearly 80% of S&P 500 companies that have reported earnings so far have exceeded analysts’ estimates, according to FactSet data. Still, Emily Roland, co-head of investment strategy at John Hancock Investment Management, said investors remain focused on a number of high-profile issues weighing on markets.

“Markets are mostly focused on some of the macro concerns around the Fed’s aggressive tightening policy, as well as this global growth scare playing out,” she said.

Many of these concerns have pushed the dollar to its highest level in more than two years. The dollar tends to strengthen when the global economy is deteriorating and investors expect US growth to outpace that of the rest of the world. Rising interest rates in the United States also generally benefit the greenback, as higher rates attract yield-seeking investors to the currency.

The ICE U.S. dollar index, which tracks the currency against a basket of others, rose 0.7% to 103.06, on track to end at its highest level since January 2017 and even surpass the March 2020 coronavirus-induced market downturn. Including Wednesday, the index rose for all but two of April’s 18 trading sessions.

Meanwhile, the euro fell 0.8% against the dollar to around $1.06, its lowest level since 2017.

In the bond market, the yield on the 10-year US Treasury fell slightly to 2.772% on Wednesday from 2.773% on Tuesday. Recently, investors have been selling bonds in anticipation of higher interest rates, and the yield on the benchmark note remains near its highest level since 2018. Bond yields and prices are moving in opposite directions.

Natural gas prices in Europe rose 4.3%, after jumping more than 20% on Wednesday. The moves came after Russia said it would halt gas flows to Poland and Bulgaria over their refusal to pay on Moscow’s new terms.

Among individual stocks, Tesla added 4.3%, on track to recoup some of its losses after falling 12% on Tuesday, its biggest one-day drop in more than a year. Twitter fell 1.4%, about 9% below the $54.20 per share price Elon Musk and Twitter agreed to in their deal to take the company private.

Microsoft jumped 5.5% after reporting an increase in revenue and profit last quarter on Tuesday as demand for its cloud services and software continued to climb.

On Tuesday, the Nasdaq Composite posted its biggest one-day percentage decline since September 2020, while the Dow Jones fell more than 800 points.

During a notarial deed, signatories often disclose personal or private information such as addresses, account numbers and financial details. One of the duties of a notary public is to respect the privacy of each signatory by not using or sharing their personal or proprietary information.. Notaries must also take appropriate measures to guarantee confidentiality and prevent any possible breach of this information. Among its many advantages, remote online notarization (RON) can help notaries fulfill this obligation more efficiently than traditional in-person notarizations, with additional security protocols including data backup and breach notification requirements.

RON laws generally require additional measures to verify the identity of the signer

With more states adopting RON laws and the physical presence of the signer no longer being required, state RON laws often require additional measures to verify the identity of the signer. For example, RON providers may be required to:

  • Verify the signer’s identity data (name, address, date of birth, etc.), images of the signer’s government-issued photo ID, and third-party validation of that identity data and image

  • Present questions and validate answers regarding the signer’s personal and financial background to further verify the signer’s identity

  • Create, and often retain, proof of the notarial transaction, including audio-visual recording and electronic journal

For this reason, it is important to use a RON platform operated by a trusted partner that recognizes the importance of and securely stores the non-public personal information (NPI) and personally identifiable information (PII) of the signer.

How to Evaluate Privacy and Security Protections for Different RON Providers

To determine whether a RON provider is adequately addressing privacy protections for personal information, organizations should begin by reviewing the provider’s privacy policy, particularly whether the policy addresses uses of personal information permitted by US law. State. Organizations should also consider whether the RON provider has enforced privacy protections that transparently define its data processing rules, such as via Binding Corporate Rules (BCR), which bind the provider and its affiliates to rigorous and consistent privacy governance processes.

Assessing security protections can be more difficult, as it may require specialized knowledge. However, organizations can consider the following criteria to determine whether a RON provider likely has sufficient safeguards in place.

Experience and Reputation: Experience in handling personal information and well-established privacy, trust and data handling policies can help ensure sensitive information is protected at all times.

Company size: large publicly traded companies are less likely to be acquired or go out of business (compared to smaller private companies) and pose less risk when it comes to maintaining control over the long term customer data.

Security controls: Encrypting sessions and documents with redundant backups and secure storage can help ensure adequate security is maintained throughout the transaction, and for as long as files are stored.

Access controls: Two-factor authentication, limited permissions based on roles and responsibilities, and the ability to audit account activity can help ensure that only authorized personnel access documents containing sensitive information.

Choosing a trusted RON provider can help protect the privacy and security of signer information

Finding a trusted RON provider goes far beyond the features available. This is to ensure that the provider meets the necessary privacy, security and compliance standards and can meet these obligations over an extended period. When organizations use DocuSign Notary to perform RON, they can be confident that DocuSign, a public company, has policies, procedures and training in place to align with these privacy and security standards and will be there for years to come. to come. Notary is powered by DocuSign’s eSignature platform, which incorporates nearly two decades of experience in transformative digital technologies, information security, privacy and data center management.
